Aerosols Modification with Hydrogen Peroxide Reduces Airborne Contamination by Dental Handpieces

Dr. Andrei Ionescu
Dentist and researcher in materials and microbiology
Milan, Italy

Ever since the onset of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Andrei Ionescu has been studying substances and solutions that may be added to the dental handpiece to prevent the spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus at source.

“We need more evidence and data from clinical situations, but what we have found is that the effectiveness is real.”

In this edition of CDA Oasis Live, Dr. John O’Keefe invites the dentist and dental materials researcher from Milan, Italy to present key findings from his recently published paper Aerosols Modification with H2O2 reduces airborne contamination by dental handpieces.

Dr. Ionescu walks through the rationale behind his hypothesis, and though he cautions that more research and data is required, he offers positive results and optimism for a potentially simple and effective solution to managing not only the coronavirus, but other infectious agents in the future.
